Autoblography: Introduction

This is not a background bio, or even a conventional memoir. It is more of an experiment I thought of a couple of years ago, and which I’m sure is not original. The thought was to write a memoir over a long period of time, consisting of posts covering different aspects, experiences and observations from my life. It will not be chronological. My idea is to organize posts around themes and threads running through my experiences, as well as episodes, stories and sketches.

I have no idea where this will take me. Wanna come?
